Travel Moments: Justin of True Nomads
I have been on the road constantly for 4 years now, and I still remember that prolific moment at the very beginning that started it all. I was living in Costa Rica, just taking a break from the world. I was in a bad mood because I knew I had to return to the rat race soon, and leave the life that made me more happy then ever. I was laying on my hammock on my porch watching the rain. All of the sudden a strong feeling came over me and told me that I don’t need to go home. I could just keep going and never live a normal life again. Right then a sloth swung lazily from my porch roof onto my balcony. He clung to the support beam not 6 feet away from me and stared at me. It was like he was telling me I had finally made a good decision. The rest is history.
